I find the natural world mesmerizing. I find it fascinating. I find beauty all around. Birds, animals, flowers, trees and foliage all combine to create Gods images. And I find creating nature images in watercolor both exciting and relaxing. I easily can get drawn into the scene and the mood I’m trying to create. This gallery contains images of my watercolor work in this area.
One morning I was kayaking through the salt grass marshes around Sunset Beach, NC and came upon this Great Egret perched on the edge. As I got closer he took off to move away from me. His launch brook the stillness in the air and I could hear the powerful strokes of its wings as it pulled away.
When out for our walks around Sunset Beach we pass by this waterway inlet. One day low and behold there is a Great White Heron perched on this log jutting out over the water. As I approached with my camera, it just stood there looking out over the water being majestic. When I got home I immediately went to work to recreate this scene in watercolor.
READY FOR FLIGHT
I watched this Great White Egret for a long time as it searched the shallows of the shoreline. This watercolor captures the moment I saw it spread its wings getting ready for flight.
